These songs were selected from the repertoire of the 1984 World Tour. Over a six month period, many hours of exciting live material was recorded in a 24 track digital format. It took another six months to remix it onto PCM 1610 digital 2 track masters. If you enjoy this recording, be advised that there is a lot more lurking in the vault. These tunes were selected because they follow the basic outline of the "DOES HUMOR BELONG IN MUSIC?" PMI/ICA video tape, as well as presenting some new, unreleased material. The recording dates were:
